“Transformation literally means going beyond your form.” Wayne Dyer

To Go Beyond

Seeking holiness and mystery in the natural world,
to go beyond the places that are built from negativity,
removing one's self from the streams of pressure,
embracing reconnection with what we bring forth.

To go beyond the places that are built from negativity,
escaping the fragmentary nature of a world of endings,
embracing reconnection with what we bring forth,
to live a story to a fulness worth writing about.

Escaping the fragmentary nature of a world of endings,
carrying this old vessel across the miles of love,
to live a story to a fulness worth writing about,
the ancient hero's long held transformative calling.

Carrying this old vessel across the miles of love,
removing one's self from the streams of pressure,
the ancient hero's long held transformative calling,
seeking holiness and mystery in the natural world.

  5. ‘Removing one’s self from the SCREAMS of pressure’ works even better for me… Streams are rather easeful and relieving for me…. Have been watching imagined pressures screaming at me lately, and am answering them back with mindfulness as much as I can… No pressure reading your poetry though, and thank you for your Sweet Flowing Streams of Consciousness
